The National Institute for Literacy will host a webcast titled From Assessment to Practice: Research-Based Approaches to Teaching Reading to Adults on Friday, September 28, 2007. This webcast will present a practical and compelling rationale for the use of research-based principles for adult reading instruction. Dr. John Kruideiner, Dr. Rosalind Davidson, and Ms. Susan McShane will use two components of reading, word analysis and comprehension, as examples to illustrate research-based practices, focusing on specific assessment and instructional strategies derived from the research. Participants will learn about the direct link between research and evidence-based practice. The presenters also will explain how all four major components of reading provide a framework for assessing students' reading ability and how assessment results can lead to a program of instruction that improve students' reading.
